Infrared (IR) inspection is a powerful and noninvasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the condition of buildings - residential or commercial. It quickly identifies problem areas that can't be seen by the naked eye and eliminates older,more costly inspection techniques that require lots of labor and destructive probing.
How Infrared Thermography Works:
Thermography enables us to see and measure heat. All materials on earth emit heat energy, in the infrared portion of the spectrum. Unfortunately, the unaided human eye cannot see in the infrared. Thermographic, or simply thermal, images allow the user to see thermally, revealing anomalies that in turn identify problems in buildings and their component electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and waterproofing systems. Today's lightweight and rugged infrared cameras can not only see in real-time, but can also record infrared images and measure the temperatures of target objects quite accurately-to within 1/10 of a Fahrenheit degree or better. Points of possible concern show up clearly as hot or cold in relation to their surroundings. Recorded thermal images can be easily inserted into reports, and e-mailed, greatly facilitating communications among trades, attorneys, and other professionals and serving as invaluable, rational, evidentiary data in cases involving controversy.
A termite inspection is a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas of a home for evidence of wood-destroying insects (WDI) and wood-destroying organisms (WDO). The inspector will visually inspect the entire interior of a home (including accessing and entering any sub-space such as basements and crawlspaces) and exterior of the property. In areas where Drywood termites are prevalent, and in houses where there are no sub-areas, the attic may also be accessed and inspected. After the inspection has been performed, the findings are reported on the applicable/appropriate form.Close
Radon is a naturally occurring gas, which permeates form the ground,
and can be found in almost every home. Radon is a class A carcinogenic responsible for 14,000 deaths per year according to the EPA. Most homes can be mitigated to below 4pCi/l (recommended action level) and many times to around 2pCi/l.
